ANTIBIOTICS AND BREAST AUGMENTATION

News from Dr. Robert J. Brueck MD , plastic surgeon in Fort Myers, FL

For years, we used to prescribe pre-operative antibiotics for breast augmentation patients. We would then continue the antibiotics for several days post-op. The question is, is it really necessary?
